Spam bots can still submit coments, even if the feature is disabled
|Reported by:||sendspace||Owned by:||anonymous|
I have looked through the closed tickets for v2.1 but did not find this mentioned.
Even though blogs with disabled comments no longer produce the link to submit a comment spambots know the URLs and forms. They submit comments directly to the comment script and by doing so bypass 'comments disabled'.
I would suggest adding a check at the actual comment submission script in order to prevent this from happening.
